After last night weird ending to the Bengals-Dolphins game in which Miami won in OT on a safety, of course Andy Dalton was asked about the play. For some reason, he decided to admit that he doesn’t know the safety rule per USA Today:
Said Dalton of the play: “It was tough. I don’t know exactly the rule, if it’s a foot, or if it’s the ball, or what it is but from the replay I thought it was out. I don’t know, I’m not an official and I don’t know how they judge that.”
Come on man. I know NFL players don’t study the rule book but I think its common knowledge that the ball is what counts in this situation the same as during a TD. This is worse than Donovan McNabb not know the overtime rules.
